in this question, we need to look at the broken graph provided in the book, but the question again itself gives us some information as well. The question asked for the difference in the minimum wage from the years 1938 2 2000 and 11. Now the question. They give us the minimum wage in 1938 in 1938 the minimum wage was 25 cents in the graph. I look at the graph in a fine 2011 and come straight up on the graph to see what point is on 2011 and in 2011 the minimum wage with $7.25. So I need to find the difference between the wages and 2011. And in 1938 Well says the 2011 wages were $7.25 and 1938 we're 25 cents, I can subtract and I get $7. So the difference between those years is $7.
